On Wednesday evening, Jan. 19, FBI agents conducted a "court-authorized" search on the Laredo, Texas home of U.S. Congressman Henry Cuellar, Democrat from TX district twenty-eight. An FBI spokesperson confirmed the investigation but said they "cannot provide further comment on an ongoing investigation."
Political insiders in Laredo and South Texas believe several reasons for this investigation.
On Saturday, Jan. 1, San Antonio’s KSAT Channel 12 TV news reported that SA City and community leaders expressed concerns about the rise of violence after five reported homicides during the week of Dec. 26-31, 2022. But, typical of the local Fake News and liberal/leftist leaders, they looked to the police for answers rather than themselves and the culture of violence and anti-social behavior in their communities.
Liberal SA City Councilman Mario Bravo from District 1 announced he would meet with police officials to discuss what they could do to end the violence. However, if Bravo is serious about ending the violence, here are some ideas.
On the eve of the 2022 New Year celebrations, the San Antonio Police Department has reminded citizens that using fireworks inside the city limits is illegal and a Class C misdemeanor with a fine of up to $2,000. However, the reality is that because of police department staffing and morale, response to calls will be slow, and few violators will be cited.
Although the SA City leaders refuse to admit it, SAPD is suffering a shortage of officers due to high rates of retirement by veteran officers and low recruitment numbers. In addition, the anti-police environment fueled by liberals and leftists has taken a toll on good police officers.
The show’s guests are Don Irvine with “Accuracy in Media,” who talks about how the “fake news” exposed itself in 2021. We also hear from Meredith Chacon, former Bexar County prosecutor, about the reasons for the rise in crime in San Antonio. Finally, we have four citizens (Tonya Sue Longston, Auburne Gallagher, April Salazar, and Ken Mercer) who talk about the good and bad of 2021 and their hopes for 2022.

KSAT Channel 12 news repeated a story today (Monday, Dec. 27) they did a month ago about an SAPD officer fired in November for lying on a report. Unfortunately, the “news report” by KSAT digital reporter Fares Sawabi doesn’t add anything new to the story other than raising the image of “dirty cops” in the public’s mind.
